Heat the oil on “saute” function on the Instant Pot. Saute onion and garlic until tender ad fragrant, about 3-4 minutes. Add Arborio rice and saute one minute.
Add wine and cook this off, about 2 mintues. Add the stock and bring to a light simmer, scraping up any browned bits. Stir in salt and pepper. If adding any dried herbs, add now.
Set Instant pot to High Pressure for 7 minutes. Manually release after 10 minutes (letting this naturally release all the way may result in rice that is slightly overcooked )
Stir in the lemon zest, grated parmesan or other cheese, optional butter, and any optional addtions you like.
Then stir in a little more broth to loosen it up and give it nice creaminess.
Adjust salt and pepper. Divide among bowls and top with fresh herbs and more finely grated cheese.
